Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will intrigue buyers. A qualified appraisal from TEXAS REAL ESTATE APPRAISERS can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected problems that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
